Hey there





Dusty Blue & Fall Wedding at Camp Hideaway Venue at Fredericksburg, TX

Sara & Dustin’s Wedding was filled with soft blues, florals, and of course let’s not forget…the sweetest pups! S&D decided to have a small intimate wedding at this beautiful hideaway location nestled in the hill country of Fredericksburg, TX. The one thing I couldn’t stop obessing over was the interior of the venue which was used for both the ceremony & reception. Scroll to see more!

Personal vow handbooks are my favorite.

I went into Dustin’s suite and asked, “Hey do you have anything you’d like for me to photograph?” And then these gorgeous beauties were wrapped up in a box… love these Guccis!
The moment when everything starts to get real.

I love that this venue offered indoor spacing for our reveals! It was a very warm and humid day and this offered everyone to stay cool and enjoy this moment vs. the elements.

The sweetest reactions!

Now if you are a Daddy’s girl this moment is for you…

Large windows are always my favorite. Sara was such a gorgeous bride.

Always know if your pup is part of your wedding day, they’re going to put in for a few photos.

I have become a fan of personal vows before the wedding vs. just a first touch. It allows you to say how you feel if you don’t wish to read your personal feelings in front of a crowd. These moments are always just so beautiful. They put nerves at ease, everyone is calm, and it’s a moment I love to photograph.

Another reason why I love vows? If you’re not up for a first look and what that moment coming down the aisle… but you also want more photographs together…. this is a perfect solution. Together we can pose you without either of you seeing each other but make some nice dramatic portraits.

The sweetest ceremony space. You can’t help but feel at peace here.

If Nora Jones played a harp…. this girl is better than that vision! Kristen was absolutely incredible!

When pups don’t want to look at the camera, just go with it. And if they run look everywhere else… do a kiss shot.

And we got them!

This moment was too cute. I tried to “fool” Sara’s pup that I had a treat… but it was my hair tie… and she went for it and I caught this. It’s one of my favorites, because everyone can relate.

And the most magical hill tops in Texas…

Matt with Power Sounds, one of our favorites!

Sara’s Dad, Bill not just toasting to the couple but to Dustin’s mother, Rhonda. It was truly touching.

That moment of the night when you capture someone doing the worm…. but wait it get’s better…

Double worm in the same song!

Dustin pulled me aside and said, “Jess, can you capture a ‘shoey’?”

This is a ‘shoey’.

Core memory.

The sweetest floral petal exit!

"We have the most beautiful moments of our lives    "


- Jessica & Austin 

"Beyond Incredible! We really hate getting our picture taken but Jessica made it feel so natural and not scary at all! We knew for our wedding it had to be done and done right because you only get 1 chance! How did she make us look so good and not awkward? She's truly great at what she does and I will never pick anyone else after the experience we had."

Jess is the best, from the moment we met her we knew we made the right decision. We had to make major changes to our wedding due to covid, Jess addressed all our concerns, and answered all our questions along the way making all the necessary changes effortlessly. Jess captured our engagement, bridal and wedding day photos each every photo is absolutely amazing. We have the most beautiful moments of our lives captured so beautifully because of Jess.

"Jessica was right there with us getting ready and capturing some very sweet and intimate photos that I know we will forever treasure. She knows exactly what to say and when to say it to get that best smile out of a very nervous bride! We had a perfect ceremony and I've seen a sneak peek of my wedding photos and am just speechless! Jessica was with us for our entire FIVE hour reception and was the perfect combination of photographer and dance partner! Jessica very quickly became a guest favorite and a family member for life! I would have her as my photographer and friend 100 times over! I will never be able to thank Jessica enough for making my day even more special."

"Jessica is so much more than a photographer! She is a planner, friend, someone who listens, and such a beneficial asset to any wedding! I cannot recommend her to enough people. She exceeds any bride's high expectations - all with a smile on her face. It is impossible to feel uncomfortable around her, she is goofy and will constantly keep you laughing. She does anything for her Bride and Groom and will not stop until you are satisfied."

I love Jessica and her work!! She took mine and my husband’s engagement pictures, wedding pictures and bridals and did an outstanding job. My husband is not very happy when it comes to taking pictures (especially with PDA ) but by the time the first session was done she turned him into a pro. The night after our wedding he was telling me he was ready to see how all the pictures turned out! She definitely knows how to help you feel comfortable in your own skin while in front of the camera. Highly highly highly recommend her for your wedding! I cannot say enough good things about her work!

- Melissa & George

My husband isn't happy when it comes to taking pictures, by the time the first session was done she turned him into a pro.

"Would recommend to any and everybody! She did an amazing amazing job with our wedding and engagement photos. I couldn’t feel more grateful and thankful that we found Jess! She is amazing and funny and finds all the great moments that we take for granted. Thank you so so much for taking care of us and our crazy family!"

- Kaitlyn & Chris 

I couldn’t feel more grateful and thankful that we found Jess! 

"Jessicas passion for photography radiated from her soul the moment I met her. When looking for a photographer, We decided that we would call a few to get a feel for the type of people they were and if they (the photographer) would fit into what we were looking for in our wedding vendors. We saw your work, we LOVED your work, but we didn’t know you. From our first conversation up until now you made us feel like you were meant to be apart of our big day! On my wedding day you made me feel like the prettiest bride to ever walk this planet! Your photos blew my husband away! You captured the uniqueness and beauty of us, our surroundings and our guest! This review, nor my “thank you”, will ever be enough to show you how grateful we are for your talent!"

- Eliza & Bradley 

 You made us feel like you were meant to be apart of our big day!

I can't say enough great things about UTS. Jessica is the BEST photographer, not just because she makes you look great, but she makes you feel great! She fills the shoot with funny jokes, music, and laughs to make sure you feel comfortable because not everyone is a super model. Each and every time I get our photos back I am blown away by great they look! She went way above and beyond anything I ever expected from a vendor. She helped us out on the wedding day in so many different ways and worked side by side with our other vendors to make our day successful and perfect. The sneak peak was incredible! She also brought a partner with her who was equally as fun as Jessica. I loved how they both worked and made the pictures fun. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. My husband & I will be using UTS exclusively for all of our photography needs.
